Worms live in a variety of habitats, in the earth such as earthworms, in water such as the leeches and in an animal such as malaria or human host such as tapeworms.
The worms that live inside or on human or animals are known as parasites and the condition as parasitosis. They survive on the food supplies of their host and cause a wide range of conditions and symptoms, ranging from mild to severe (Psora/ Causa occasionalis).
The state of being invaded or overrun by parasitic worms inside a living host is termed worm infestation (Psora).
In India, the incidence of worm infestation is quite common-
Parasites use host organisms for their nutrients and thrive in environments where they have a ready supply of food. The worms eat half-digested food in their host’s intestines as their own food supply or suck blood.
Parasites injure and destroy the tissues of their hosts. They also produce toxic waste products causing a wide range of health problems to the host. (Psora/ Syphilis/ Causa occassionalis)
Many parasites are minute and almost invisible to the naked eye, while others grow to large lengths. Small sized parasites easily travel around the blood stream finding suitable places to grow and develop or creep on surface of hot body.
Intra alimentary or intra visceral parasites invade intestine, liver, spleen, lungs, brain, blood cells etc.
The adult parasites live in the intestine. During night, female parasites migrate to the anus and lay eggs. These eggs later pass out through the stool and remain in the external environment for several weeks. Humans become infected through unhygienic contact where these eggs get ingested. The eggs enter into human body through water and food and they breed in the intestines.
The main causes of intestinal worms are wrong food habits and faulty lifestyle. Worms transmit through-
All these worms are characterized by following points-
Worms that infect humans can be divided into three groups-
Tapeworm Schistosoma Ascaris lumbricoides
Flatworms include Tapeworms. Flatworms breathe and eat literally through their skin. Oxygen and nutrients pass through their skin. They have no separate organs for digestion or circulation.
They feed on the blood, tissue fluids, or pieces of cells inside the bodies of their hosts. They live internally in humans and infect the blood and organs. Flatworms range in size from being microscopic to some over 20 meters long as whale tapeworm.
The most common types of flatworms that live in humans are Tapeworms. Tapeworms live in human intestines and feed on the partially-digested food in intestines.
Flukes are a type of parasitic Flatworm. They have at least one external sucker, which is used to attach themselves to their host. Blood flukes live in humans internally.
The most common types of roundworms are Pinworms or Threadworms, Hookworms, Ascaris and Heartworms.
They have hollow bodies and openings at either end and generally grow between 2-5 inches in length. Roundworms are very commonly found in pets and animals such as dogs and cats and can easily pass on to humans.
Roundworms live in salt water, fresh water and soil. Contaminated food and pets are the most usual way to get roundworms.
Most individuals with intestinal worm infestation are asymptomatic.
Heavy and chronic infection of Trichuris with co-infection of Entamoeba can cause dysentery and resemble hook-worm disease, acute appendicitis or amoebic dysentery.
Children may show-
Occasionally patient may give history of passing worms in stools. Oral expulsion of round worms is also occasionally perceived.
It is based on history of-
The type of Intestinal worms can be recognized based on the typical symptoms displayed by each type of worm-
They enter the body by contaminated food or undercooked food or meat. There are two species of Tapeworm (taenia)- Taenia Solium (beef tapeworm) and Taenia Saginata (pork tapeworm). Tapeworm resemble noodles and are white in color and mover in a squirming motion.
Abdominal pain is the most common symptom of Tapeworm. This may or may not be accompanied by weight loss.
The two roundworms- Toxascaris leonina and Toxocara canis, are more harmful than tapeworms and produce cough, abdominal pain, fever, vomiting, inflammation of the intestine and lungs, diarrhea, irritability, nervousness, fatigue, weight loss and allergic reactions.
Pinworms cause itching of the anus or vagina and may result in lesions in the anus. Itching normally occurs at night which may cause fatigue, irritability, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
These are characterized by regular bouts of diarrhea, alternating with constipation, intense itching in the area of rectum, cough, fever and loss of weight.
Liver fluke causes jaundice, fever, enlarged liver, pain under the ribs on the right side. If left untreated, liver fluke can cause other complications, especially biliary tract disease.
The symptoms of hookworms affecting the intestine include nutritional disorders and anemia.
The diagnosis is mostly clinical. However, stool samples may be seen for cysts and ova. Perianal scrapings with cello tape or swabs from under the nails may be taken for eggs of Enterobius. Peripheral blood smear may show eosinophilia.
For eggs in stools for Ankylostoma, Necator, Ascaris, Trichuris and Strongyloid species. Proglottids are demonstrable in stools for Taeniasis.
For Entrobius infections in children ova can be noticed in perianal region using National Institute of Health anal swab.
For eosinophilia and microscopic, hypo-chromic anemia in case of helminthiasis.
To detect cysticercosis in brain and muscles especially in thighs.
May be required as additional examinations for cysticercosis and hydatid cyst cases.
